Professor Kim Art History Lessons 1- 10


The gallery space leads to the downstairs of the underground world where the game playing at a different level, displaying the 10 notel players that loop the videos of contemporary art history lessons being sent into North Korea. Screened on notel players at the gallery (notels being the commonly smuggled electronic device in North Korea for viewing foreign media akin to older DVD players with USB and SD ports), the art history lessons in video art form are the same ones being transmitted into North Korea, supported by anonymous North Korean defectors led NGOs in South Korea and by these people who believe it their life’s mission to help North Koreans liberate. These defectors, the collaborators of this aspect of the work, believe that this kind of information has the power to educate North Koreans about media.
